“I Can Tell (By The Way You Move)” has been floating around in rip form since at least January, but today it’s hit the web, albeit with no further info than a “forthcoming…” note on the Soundcloud upload. Like his Hotflush label boss Scuba, Fitzgerald’s music has been getting brighter and more “big room” oriented for the past few releases and “I Can Tell (By The Way You Move)” will probably end up representing the apex of that trend. It’s a Summer tune out and out that will most likely see an “Au Seve” like rise through the web/festival/BBC circuit into the workout playlists of bros across several continents. Hopefully Fitzgerald doesn’t lose his love for both production and performance as Bashmore has though. “I Can Tell (By The Way You Move)” will most likely be released on Hotflush, although the long wait between the debut and today’s unofficial seeming preview might be a sign that the track is signed to a larger label… anything is possible in our post-“Latch”/”Need U” world.
If you haven’t noticed, Hotflush Recordings is kind of taken over and whether you appreciate Scuba and his antics or not, it appears that the rising imprint is going to be staking its claim for quite some time. Recently, Mr. Paul Rose and George Fitzgerald got in on the action, closing out the recent Hotflush/Boiler Room event and laying down more than a few juicy exclusives in their 70 minutes behind the decks. My personal highlight came in the form of Fitzgerald’s never-heard-before “I Can Tell (By The Way You Move)”, a feel-good, peak-time stomper that has the potential for “Au Seve” like reach. It’s just that damn infectious. Dusky, xxxy, Jimmy Edgar and others also feature prominently in the mix. Stream below and find a (mostly correct) tracklist after the jump.
As resident PMR Records vixen, Jessie Ware is generally provided with some of the best production in all of the land, often from the likes of Julio Bashmore and Disclosure. Production quality aside, Ware’s got a fancy set of pipes on her and has expertly straddled the pop line all year long. A few days ago, PMR released a remix EP for Ware’s “No To Love” and brought in George Fitzgerald, Todd Edwards and Ewan Pearson to partake in the festivities. Out of the three heavy lifters, Fitzgerald’s flip hits closest to home, quite possibly because he doesn’t alter Ware’s shmexy vocals to the extent Edwards and Pearson do. If you’re looking for some late night vibes with serious sex appeal, Fitzgerald’s got your back. Stream the remix below and head here to check out the rest of the EP.
